Do You Have a Bathroom, Kitchen or Other Tile Project and Need It Installed, Set, Laid or Placed Correctly the First Time?

Work with Qualified Labor. Hire a Certified Tile Installer (CTI).

Work with a Certified Tile Installer

Perhaps you have a kitchen remodel in mind. Or you plan to entirely redesign your bathroom. Either project includes tilework - for the floors and walls. Perhaps it's a new backsplash, a tub surround, wood plank tile floors or an amazing new curbless shower with linear drains. To ensure complete success for these projects, hire a tile contractor who has received the designation of Certified Tile Installer from the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation.

Here's why.

The Ceramic Tile Education Foundation (CTEF) offers the only 3rd party assessment of tile installer skills and knowledge recognized by the Tile Industry. Once tile contractors or tile setters have been certified, we include them in the listing below so you can find one near you.
